The Flapper By Dorothy Parker

The great acerbic writer Dorothy Parker wrote this famous ode to the flapper.

The Flapper
By Dorothy Parker
DANCING FLAPPER---Glamourdaze-2012
The Playful flapper here we see,
The fairest of the fair.
She’s not what Grandma used to be, —
You might say, au contraire.
Her girlish ways may make a stir,
Her manners cause a scene,
But there is no more harm in her
Than in a submarine.
Jazz Flapper---Glamourdaze-2012
She nightly knocks for many a goal
The usual dancing men.
Her speed is great, but her control
Is something else again.
All spotlights focus on her pranks.
All tongues her prowess herald.
For which she well may render thanks
To God and Scott Fitzgerald.
Christmas Flapper
Her golden rule is plain enough –
Just get them young and treat them
Rough.
THATS-ALL -Glamourdaze
